I can't make fish fly in formation over my head, but apparently, I have super powers. I am enjoying a day of whimsy and hanging with my kids. My son is 18 and about to start college, if we can ever find any classes open. Long story, but he's been accepted to three colleges and universities, we have paid all the fees, met all the requirements and can't seem to find any open classes. We are currently enrolled in two separate places, just hoping to get some classes that he can actually attend! That's an all consuming job at the moment. My daughter is 16, almost 17 and she is about to be a senior. Today is one of those days where nothing seems as important as hanging out with them.

So, as we sit around talking about various directions in which the writers could take Grey's Anatomy, as we watch reruns, we have been looking up things in Urban Dictionary. That's where we discovered anyone named Marsha has super powers. I can read minds and know who is calling me before I answer the phone (withOUT looking at the call waiting) supposedly but it does seem kind of true we decided.
We have also discussed why flip flops get stinky and how to get them unstinky and we've talked about thugs and contemporary uses of that word, and we've talked about movies, and friends and various things. My kids are getting to that remarkable age where even in seemingly trivial discussions, from their mouths, more frequently than before, flow some incredibly intelligent developed thought that makes you realize they are their own people with their own sense of self and that they have grown up or are about to be grown up. That amazement you find in your kids accomplishments does not end after the first words are spoken, or first steps taken. It continues long after they are talking and walking, and have grown taller and smarter than you, I have pleasantly discovered.
My friend Terri is celebrating her 35th wedding anniversary today and it made me realize I never proclaimed my undying love for my own dear man. Last week we celebrated our 22nd anniversary and more than ever, I cannot imagine my life without him. He has been such a rock for me always, but especially in the last year. The best friend I have ever had, the best husband I could have ever imagined. He completes me. He is someone I admire greatly for so many reasons and I know how very lucky I am to have him. He makes dreams come true. He has super powers too.
